--- A MESSAGE ON COVID-19 FROM THE ACC DFW BOARD OF DIRECTORS: In-person events postponed through April---

The ACC Dallas-Fort Worth Chapter continues to monitor the evolving situation and recommendations from both the CDC, ACC headquarters, local authorities and the State Bar of Texas regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID- 19.) We understand that health and safety concerns are affecting our members and law firm sponsors. 
With that said, our in-person events have been postponed through April. We will announce new dates as soon as possible with refunds for those who can no longer attend.

As you know, the ACC-DFW chapter works with a variety of sponsors and speakers to present best-in-class programming for our members. Please note that some events may be postponed due to a sponsor’s policy, travel restrictions imposed upon speakers, and other factors.

***If a program is postponed, we will provide notice via email to those who registered and update our website ***

Thank you for your patience, flexiblity and understanding as we continue to monitor this unchartered territory. We will stay in touch and continue with updates.

Stay well.
